Every item on our list is handcrafted and handmade locally with a particular purpose with high quality ingredients and materials.
We are a one-woman show dealing in all facets of the business. I’m Ameena Ali, and I initially started off in the sewing arena catering to only Muslims sisters where modesty is concerned and adequately covering our bodies. This was only a seasonal venture and I needed something that does well year round.
It wasn’t long before I branched off into the soap and candle making business. My natural soaps and artisan soaps made using the cold process method suited me best as it leaves room to explore my creativity utilising the best and high quality ingredients and raw materials free from sulfates, silicones, parabens, petroleum and phthalates. The candles are made using 100% soy wax as it’s more eco-friendly than paraffin wax which is most commonly and widely used by many commercial businesses. My candles are fragranced with phthalate-free fragrance oils and essential oils on some occasions.
My aim is to only increase in quality and introduce more fine self-care products to my repertoire, and I’m so happy that you’re taking this journey with me.

My new favourite is that peppermint charcoal. I’m absolutely in love with it. Can’t stop sniffing that thing, it’s as if I’m on drugs! It smells so good to eat. And your updated ingredients make your soaps feel so much more moisturising and luxurious.
The scent filled my entire bedroom in about 45mins and it smells so good! Listen, the scent is now in my living room even though the candle is in my bedroom and I just can’t, I’m so enjoying this!
I ain’t lying to tell you that I enjoy bathing with your soaps. You know that I will have an appreciation for natural and handmade and a muslimah.
My husband absolutely loves his soap! It was one of his Eid gifts and he treasures it. He’s more into beauty care than me and your soap definitely passed his test.
